Where the Lowly and Just with the people sat down,
And thy spray on the dust of His sandals was thrown.

And the desolate hills of the wild Gadarene;
And I pause on the goat-crags of Tabor to see

And Naphthali's stag, with his eyeballs of flame,
And the chariots of Jabin rolled harmlessly on,
For the arm of the Lord was Abinoam's son!

To the song which the beautiful prophetess sang,
